Shania Twain sticks it to cheating ex in awesome new video

Pain has never looked this good. Shania Twain is back with a vengeance and a smile.

They say living well is the best revenge and Shania Twain has got it down pat. 

The 51-year-old Canadian is making a comeback with her new single “Life’s About to Get Good” which, despite its sunny overtone, reveals Twain’s pain over her break-up with ex-husband Robert “Mutt” Lange. 

The song is all about new beginnings and makes many unsubtle references to her ex and the end of their 15-year marriage. 

In the video, Twain looks regretfully at a photo of her and Lange before one of the bubbly, colourful dancers in the clip turns the picture upside down, dropping Lange from view as Twain sings: “It was time to forget you forever.

“‘I was broken, I was shattered/ I trusted you so much/ I couldn’t move on and I think you were flattered… It killed me that you’d give your life to be with her.”

But despite the sometimes sad lyrics, Twain keeps it upbeat with the chorus: “Oh life’s about joy/ Life’s about pain/I’m ready to be loved/And love the way I should/Life’s about, life’s about to get good.”

She even references her hit song “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” donning the very outfit she wore in the original. 

Speaking to US-television program Entertainment Tonight, Twain said: “It was really scary taking that leap. The album’s done, and I feel really good.

“The first single is so optimistic and hopeful — regardless of how bad life could get. I really needed that message.”

Since Twain’s marriage to Lange, whom she shares a 15-year-old son with, fell apart nine years ago, she hasn’t held back on the salacious details.

Lange left the successful country star for her longtime secretary and best friend Marie-Anne Thiébaud. 

Twain has said the only thing she’d say to the woman who used to manage her Switzerland estate was: “I wish I’d never met you.”

The divorce caused Twain to come down with dysphonia until she, ironically, wed Marie-Anne’s Swiss ex-husband Frédéric in 2011. 

The new album entitled NOW is set for release in September and will be Twain’s first album in 15 years; her last album Up! rose to number one on the Billboard charts after its release in 2002.

The new album will be five-time Grammy winner’s fifth overall.
